There are certainly ways to bring it to the next level, and that's what we'll witness in the collaboration between Coffex Coffee and Singleton Selects

Singleton Selects has been actively creating a creative F&B movement with their inceptions of unique eat-drink experiences for Malaysians. They recently kickstarted with a whisky-infused ice cream bar and they're back to breaking boundaries again. This time around, they're infusing whisky to... coffee!

This new collaboration between Singleton Selects and Coffex Coffee explores the fusion of the flavours of rich, dark coffee mixed with smooth single malt whiskies for the perfectly-balanced artisanal cocktails.

There's a method to the madness of it all. Mixologist, Kelvin Lee, holds the key to the secret and art of mixing coffee and whisky, creating four exclusive cocktail flavours.

By fusing Coffex Coffee's premium fresh coffee beans with The Singleton’s distinct expressions, Kelvin Lee came up with four different interpretations of coffee-whisky cocktails. Each cocktail features a Singleton variant:

1. The Singleton: Ethiopia Style – The Singleton of Glen Ord 12 Years, with espresso syrup made with Coffex Ethiopia Limu Agora Yukro, honey dew, chocolate syrup, lemon juice and egg white.
2. The Singleton Presso-Tini – The Singleton of Glen Ord 15 Years, with Coffex Ethiopia Limu Agaro Yukro, Earl Grey syrup, lemon juice, and white marshmallow.
3. The Singleton Naughty Butter – The Singleton of Glen Ord 18 Years with Coffex Ethiopia Limu Hunda Oli, peanut butter, and macadamia nut syrup.
4. The Singleton Kopi Ais – The Singleton of Glen Ord Signature with espresso ice cubes made with Coffex Ethiopia Limu Hunda Oli, and agave syrup.

This is definitely right up the alley of not just the coffee and whisky aficionados, but also those who aren't afraid to explore new and experimental flavours

Consumers are demanding for more sophisticated tastes, it is no longer just about getting a caffeine fix. For the Singleton Selects project, we experimented the various possibilities of pairing The Singleton whiskies with our single origins coffee beans, and we’re very excited to share the final menu with everyone. Expect nothing less than a premium blend of perfectly balanced, ultra-smooth coffee-whisky cocktails!” shared Kelvin Ngow, Executive Director of Coffex Coffee Malaysia.
